Lots of opps for those interested in finance and consulting. Resume drops, on-campus interview, career fairs. It is probably below average though. Few to no options for any other field besides finance or consulting. Liberal arts heavy education does not focus on developing real world skills.

Overachievers. When I was there the culture was quite insular - privileged white straight boys in fraternities. It appears to have become much more diverse recently, but still overly reliant on fraternities for social life.

CURRICULUM FOCUS
Dartmouth College Business Program
UDC Contributor

For graduate students ready to immerse themselves in full-time pursuit of an MBA, Tuck School of Business may be the perfect community. The school does not offer part-time options, and more than half of the students live on campus in Hanover (the rest live nearby). Accessibility to peers is important since much of the program revolves around teamwork. In fact, entering students are immediately placed in study groups of six classmates selected for diversity of skills and experience. Unlike most MBA programs, Tuck doesn’t offer majors. Instead, the first year gives all students a solid general management foundation, and the second year provides opportunity to tailor electives to one’s interests. The mandatory First-Year Project course challenges students to act as consultants and apply classroom knowledge to solve business problems for existing companies. Tuck also requires students to complete a “global insight” experiential course in which they visit another country and immerse themselves in the culture. These adventures have led students to places such as India to provide economic analysis for the establishment of a dairy production facility and to Japan to help a healthcare leader access the needs of patients with diabetes. The mixture of a rigorous academics, practical experience, and international awareness is attractive on the job market -- by graduation, more than 83 percent of the class of 2014 had found employment, and the average base salary was $117,860.

CURRICULUM FOCUS
Dartmouth College Engineering Program
UDC Contributor

Walk into Intro to Engineering at this Ivy League school in New Hampshire and you’re immediately collaborating to design a device that solves a real-life problem, such as saving energy or purifying water. Some ideas produced over the years have been so promising that they’ve been patented and marketed. Encouragement to think in novel ways continues throughout your time at the Thayer School of Engineering, which purposely does not divide itself into departments in order to foster cross-disciplinary innovation. This team-centered, free thinking approach to engineering has helped Thayer attract a large number of women. Females received 42 percent of the engineering degrees granted to the class of 2015; the national average is 19 percent. In line with broadening horizons, most engineering undergrads leave Dartmouth with two degrees: a bachelor of arts and a bachelor of engineering. Thayer also offers master’s programs and the nation’s first Ph.D. Innovation Program – five years of financial support to earn a doctorate and build an enterprise based on technical innovation.

Masters of Business Administration, Class of 2007

U The Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth is a very unique graduate school for many reasons. It is nestled in the beautiful mountains of New Hampshire, which provides a secluded and stimulating venue for learning, exploring, and establishing incredible friends and networks. For most people pursuing an MBA, their future home is likely an urban or suburban area. What makes Tuck feel almost magical is its 2-year hiatus from city life and the ability to escape to fresh air. Aside from the environment, Tuck provides an incredible curriculum to explore a wide variety of careers and subjects. The greatest takeaway from my courses was the business and professional acumen learned from interacting with incredibly dynamic people. And the most unique and wonderful aspect of Tuck is its global network. Even though it is a small graduate program, the Tuck network is unmatched. Tuck fosters a strong bond between its students, families, and faculty. In my career as a financial advisor, entrepreneur, and partner at Compass Financial Group, my Tuck connections have been some of my greatest supporters in helping me grow my business.

B.E. Engineering, Class of 2015

U Thayer's engineering program is unique in its focus on collaborative work and emphasis on hands-on learning. Over the course of my engineering degree, I worked on 12+ term-long group projects with teams ranging from 2-6 people. The emphasis on collaboration did not just apply to group work; we were encouraged to help each other in problem sets and test preparation as well. Thayer has almost a team spirit about it. By the time I graduated, my Thayer classmates were my best friends. Thayer pushes its students to learn both the theory and practice of engineering. For me this meant many hours building and prototyping in Thayer's state-of-the-art machine shop using rapid prototyping tools like 3D printers, laser cutters, the shop bot, and mold-making materials. I even did a couple of projects in Dartmouth's awesome woodshop. I also became a certified SolidWorks professional through one of my capstone classes, Computer-Aided Mechanical Engineering Design. At my job at Smart Design, the experience I got at Thayer in design research and ideation has helped me set myself apart in my ability to understand the entirety of the product development process.
